Renaissance - Guess Who's Back



Dear Readers,


Guess who’s back…back again!


Well, it’s been interesting, has it not?  And to be honest, your Hapless Blogger didn’t really know what to say to you in light of everyone being in lockdown and completely uncertain of what was going to happen to them.


However, in recent weeks, as lockdown eases, we begin to emerge like little moles into the sunlight (or perhaps sleepy dormice would be a better analogy, since I think moles are blind…) anyhow, you get the idea.  It seems that, as things are starting, just starting to get on the path to being back to normal, whatever the new normal may be, our thoughts are turning once more to travel.  It is therefore appropriate that we reprise our adventures!


So, buckle up, dear Readers, and let’s get going!


As restrictions ease, we’re going to have a look at the latest travel trends for this year, including some informative blog posts on the latest travel advice, including what to wear and what to expect as we begin to spread our wings.


However, let’s not forget what our MO is in the first place, and you’ll have read, hopefully, dear Readers, our blog posts on Space travel, and I think you’ll all agree, that we have a hell of a lot to talk about in terms of a certain Mr Musk!

Coming back to earth, we’re going to look in more detail about Staycations, ideas of what you can do at home, and, dare I say it, camping holidays.  However, not camping as we know it, dear Readers, but luxury camping holidays to such exotic locations as France and Corsica:  the idea being, driving rather than flying.  Half of you have probably already been driven mad by children and grandchildren, so let’s look at the likes of Euro Disney and child-friendly holidays that you will all (questionable) enjoy.  Perhaps that’s stretching it a bit, but let’s face it, there’s nothing more educational than travel.  You might even be treated to a re-appearance by Jolly Hockey Sticks, the Hapless Blogger’s rather scathing mothership…

Camping in Corsica


Since you’ll need a holiday after all that parenting/babysitting we’re going to look at beach clubs – down with the kids cool or emperor’s new clothes?  Are beach clubs the reserve of TOWIE (a British reality show for our European readers) or are they somewhere super cool and chilled to hang out?  Here we’ll visit the hot spots of Spain, Mallorca and Corsica:  for those who are new to our blog, we try and keep our posts to personal experience, because we really believe that that is the best way to describe things, and also unearths some funny stories along the way.

Then, being greedy little foodies, we’re going to eat our way round Europe…because why not?  We’re going to look at the best foodie holidays and even learn to make pasta in Italy…how cool is that?

We’re also going to look at great rail travel:  from the Flying Scotsman to the Orient Express as we explore different travel trends through the ages to modern day.  Was it better back then?  Was there more glamour?  Or is it better now?

Something else we haven’t yet covered in our blog posts is cruising.  Either love it or hate it, it’s an enormous industry with even bigger ships.  So we going to look at options big and small:  from the biggest ships the size of small cities, to sailing your own vessel in shark-infested waters!  Well, possibly not…
